When was the golden age of anime?
When Madoka aired to now.
Haven't reached it yet.
these niggas get it
the 80's, only the absolutely most delusional people out there dispute this
From 2005 to 2009. Anyone who says animu from before 1990 is the ebest, as good as many were, fail in grafic quality, and, therefore, should not be concidered.
It began with Evangelion, ended with Naruto and was reborn with Madoka.
Approximately 1979 to 1999 in my opinion.
Anime before '79 wasn't bad by any means and there was some really great manga created in the 60s and 70s, but I think anime really hit its stride around 1980 as they guys who began animating in the 50s and 60s became more skilled and the great manga of the 60s and 70s was adapted into good shows.
Anime since 1999 isn't bad either, but I'd characterize today as more of a silver or even bronze age of anime.
What are the specifications?
WHATAFUCK MAN XDDD
I'm not sure but I know the dark ages were 2000-2009
Really? I could name like 10 shows that are must watch" from that era.
Ten shows out of a thousand is not really a golden age.
By then CG will actually look good.
Early eighties till 2006. Here is a fun video listing the most popular works from every year of anime since the time of Astroboy till the time of Madoka, including how much anime was produced in each year.
When IM aired.
THE GOLDEN AGE WAS YESTERDAY, THE DAY BEFORE, TODAY AND TOMORROW, UNTIL THE DAY I DIE.
Actually I'd suppose if the golden age is gone i'll just go to Gensyoko or start to work as a slave of the system.
CG will never look as good as a high budget hand drawn anime, especially ones produced in the 80s and 90s.
They're different tools yes. But you do not fucking use a knife to scoop out ice cream from a pot. Use a damn spoon, it's more efficient.
More like 2000-2005. 2006 had a lot of good stuff.
2007 was also one of the best years for anime.
anime has always been shit
Shit analogy. CGi is less expensive, so it's a tool that is preferred over anime hand drawn on cels and shot on film, which is expensive and more time consuming. Even if the tool isn't as good, it gets the job done.
It's talent that matters mostly, and budget.
I don't know if it can be THE golden age, but the 2000 era was amazing to say the least.
Pretty much this
but the 2000's were filled with terrible uguu character designs that we're only just now recovering from as well as a plethora of harem and shitty adaptations
>When was the golden age of anime?
The "golden age" of anime was roughly from 1978 through 1995. It was that time that anime grew the most in both artistry, variety, and fulfilled the limitations of the medium whilst still meeting the needs of consumers. Many anime titles regularly sold 50,000 video copies ver volume. Some of the more popular titles sold as many as 500,000 units during this golden age. Series would run for 26 to 48 episodes typically. The goal of releasing shows for only 12 episodes per season primarily to market merchandise and licenses had not taken root as anime was still telling stories back then.
As for those who say the golden age of anime is the moe anime period onwards, that just shows what types of fans they are - moe & fan-service fans.
Before Haruhi Suzumiya invented moe in 1976.
Well, yeah sure, but you can find holes in every era, we should try to find one that has the least holes or the most unoticeable, in comparison to what was good.
Also, personal taste also gets involved.
